“‘Holiday Wars’ is the little webcomic that could,” says Michael DeVito, co-publisher of Th3rd World Studios. “Trying to sell the concept of Holidays being living breathing entities is hard, but luckily the story struck a chord with readers and has become one of our most read webcomics.”
In the world of “Holiday Wars,” the relative power and longevity of the Holidays is always changing with the cultural tide. Realizing this, The Easter Bunny declares war on the other Holidays in the hopes of gaining the one thing that can guarantee his immortality:

The comic launched under the Th3rd World banner on July 15, 2010 and quickly expanded to it’s own site at www.Holiday-
On Thursdays, the comic updates with a spin-off series called "Tales of Holiday's Past." The series focuses on short stories starring the supporting cast of the main storyline. Although the regular art team has contributed to "ToHP," the series is mostly drawn by guest artists from throughout the comic industry.
"The main storyline is Tegan's story," King says. "So she was always the priority, and as a result there were mythos things and character things I wanted to do with the other characters and that's really how 'ToHP' was born. It was a way for us to deliver the back story and for me to work with some really talented artists."
Volume 1 of "Holiday Wars" is set to wrap next May with Volume 2 launching a month later. Also releasing next year will be a prequel novel and a spin-off graphic novel starring the fan favorite character of April Fools
